Overview of A Civilian Response to Ethno-Religious Conflict: The Gulen Movement in Southeast Turkey

Mardin in Southeast Turkey has suffered ethno-religious conflict for more than two decades. Mehmet Kalyoncu presents an extensive analysis on the activities of the Gülen movement as an antidote to this conflict. How the local people of different ethno-religious backgrounds mobilized and participated, how this eased ethno-religious tensions, and how the work of volunteers minimized support for terrorist organizations such as the PKK and Hizbullah, illustrates the appeal of Gülen's and the movement's ideas to people of diverse ethno-religious backgrounds. The success of movement participants in Mardin lays possible guidelines for tackling ethno-religious conflicts elsewhere in the world.

Synopsis of A Civilian Response to Ethno-Religious Conflict: The Gulen Movement in Southeast Turkey

This extensive analysis of the Mardin conflict in southeast Turkey considers the likelihood that socioreligious movements, such as the popular Glen movement, could effect positive change in ethnoreligious disputes, even those decades old. By focusing specifically on how Glen volunteers helped minimize the support of terrorist organizations in Anatolia, this guide illustrates how potent nonpolitical solutions to ethnic conflict can be.
